A spelling mistake on a water tower in Wichita that drew national attention and a lot of laughs has been corrected.
Wichita State University will close its golf course on Nov. 3 to prepare for an expansion.
The university announced Tuesday that the university golf teams will be able to use part of its Braeburn golf course.
The school plans to demolish apartments this fall and begin construction of an engineering building early next year. It is part of a 20-year plan that could include up to 20 buildings. Much of that expansion will be on land that currently holds the golf course.
The Wichita Eagle reports school officials pointed out in a news release that the land was originally acquired in 1967 for future expansion. The Board of Trustees says the land will be more valuable to the city and state as the home of the proposed Innovation Campus.
